    Just bought the new weed eater today. I'm about to leave to take care of a couple of yards so we'll see how it does. I've used one before with another LCO so it's not going to be a surprise. I talked with my dealer about it or the FS 110. He said that the 110 has only been out for a year and a half. They don't know if it will last 8 years or two years. He told me that he would go with the FS 80 because of the reliability and still has plenty of power to boot. I thought this was really respectable because he could've fed me a lie to get the more expensive one.

    Well we know they will last 2 years because this is the third year.

    The fs80's and the fs85's (now discontinued) are very reliable trimmers.
    The fs110 still needs time to prove itself but has it's believers and non believers just like all the rest.

    Just got back from doing a couple of yards. This trimmer is amazing! I'm really happy with it. It def. will help out in the future.
